university law society and the first female student to be elected and by this stage i was interested in social change. in ireland at that time time, there was a total equation of crime and i felt this was not allowing the private individual morality and also that there were non catholics and we should open up to minorities to respect to the viewpoint so in my inaugural address on law and morality i need some -- i made some recommendations we should legalize family planning and should not criminalize consenting behavior and we should not have suicide as a crime. i remember the speech caused in quite a fuss as it was new to the examination of the move to slightly larger audiences there was the moment of silence when i finished it i was worried they're less more than a decent applies but the thought was that is what students do maybe i have been more outspoken than others but then i was lucky to get fellowship to harvard university that was a wonderful year to be in harvard when i found they were questioning the immoral for of vietnam and escape -- is keeping the draft some of the civil

politician is planning to run in may's election. >> he has certainly mobilize the masses. it should not be forgotten that 80,000 office bearers who were elected recently are going to be taking their oath here today, so even if there were two key people joining each of those, it would be several hundred thousand people. he has certainly gained support because of his anti-drunk campaign. he was the only politician to go to north waziristan, but no one knows who will sweep the polls in the upcoming election. >> in bangladesh, the number of people killed has risen to 20. at least 200 more were injured when the storm ripped through villages in the east. the tornadoes destroyed many buildings and blew down a large number of trees. and a trillion and taken hostage in the philippines has been freed after 15 months. he was being held by an armed group near the southeast. he told police he was placed on a fishing vote by his captors and paddled his way to land. a joint effort by both countries help secure his release. myanmar because the government's -- rival groups armed with knives and stic
between who has the authority to regulate elections. the election clause of the constitution actually gives authority to both. but where is the line when one crosses or goes too far than the other does? so that's the issue before the court. it wasn't clear today that it's going to be an easy line to find. >> ifill: the reason why this arizona law exists is because arizona officials say there's a problem involving illegal or undocumented immigrants registering to vote fraudulently. is there any evidence... did they present evidence today that that's a big problem? >> no, not today. in fact, there was more argument on the other side that there is no problem. but what arizona is saying is there is also a problem with the federal law. the federal law doesn't require proof that citizenship. but the way it deals with citizenship as eligibility for registration is it requires the applicant who wants to register to vote to sign under oath that the applicant meets all of the requirements of the federal law. arizona's attorney general thomas horn today told the court that that was an honor roll
. the former military ruler says that he wants to run in the next election and is unfazed by a death threat from the pakistan taliban. former president and general has threatened to come back on many occasions, but he is finally here. he comes home to a very different pakistan and the one that he left. he was a very unpopular figure when he left. here he used to have the support of the main political party. sources are telling us that they are not sure if they will do any kind of deal with him. in order to make this work, to have some kind of success in the general election, he needs to make alliances. at the moment he does not have the kind of political clout to make those alliances worthwhile. he needs to make deals with people. he said he wants to try to unite the people who are undecided, who are against the dynastic and family politics of pakistan. he wants to unite a people who are frustrated with the corruption endemic within pakistan in politics. a pakistani politician who used to be a former sports and has slashed -- has huge support when it comes to young people. he had a massive

"newsroom." i'm suzanne malveaux. up ahead, cyber attacked on a florida election is raising alarms about security at the voting systems across the country. so this attack involved more than 2,500 phantom requests for absentee ballots during the august primary. our chris lawrence who has been digging into this. chris, what do we know, election officials now being able to detect that something happened, something was wrong. how did they do that? >> basically two things really jumped out at them, suzanne. they looked at two things. one, the fact that all of these requests were coming from what looked like the same computers. also, they were coming in so quickly they figured no human being could enter that much information that quickly. those were two big red flags. then they started to look further and determine that the internet -- the i.p. addresses of these computers were blocked. once investigators were able to dig in and look at them, it turned out that all of these i.p. addresses were going through what's called an anonmiser. in india and the uk sort of a way to wash your tracks on th
the european monetary union, not with less number of members. so certainly not before the german election in september. >> but isn't it -- even though she does not want to do that, in the near term, she has an election to run. an election coming up. and apparently striking this hard line to turn to the germans and say, look, we didn't fund this rescue, this bailout of the russian mafia or something. >> it's true. it's having the intentions first of all to come out as fair, not to put german taxpayers money on before you do a bailin. but at the same time, and more importantly, she wants to keep the euro area safe. it's the crisis in which one country leaves the monetary union is one of her premises and one of her premises of the campaign is to elect strengthening, blowing up for crisis in cyprus will not be helpful to her. there were many mistakes in retrospect. you could say the same for greece, as well. but, you know, it's -- one issue that will be critical is they would not compromise on money laundering issues. they might come mize a little bit here and there on money, but they will no
in the 2014 midterms and then subsequently 2016 general election? >> well, alex, we've seen a clear shift in public opinion on this issue over the last ten years. it's been quite dramatic. all sorts of polls now, including the reuter's poll last week shows that the public supports gay marriage even civil unions. even in the south, the majority supports gay marriage or civil unions together. democrats are united on this issue. they say it's a big winner, especially among younger voters, and there's a real sort of active debate within the republican party about how to play this. there's a lot of people saying we've got to stop emphasizing these social issues because they are not working in our favor. however, if you're going to have a divisive 2016 primary, rick santorum is going to want to talk about that and that could really hurt them. >> do you think that will be the case in 2016? if you look at what has happened since gavin newson signed gay marriage in law, he performed the ceremonies himself there and made it legal, look how much things have ink changed in one decade. do you think it
to only fund candidates they consider viable in a general election. it was a message that drew a quick response from one of the party's top strat gists. >> the last thing we need is washington, d.c. vetting our candidates. if these experts who keep losing elections, keep getting rehired, raking in millions -- if they feel that strongly about who gets to run in this party, then they should buck up or stay in the truck. buck up and run. the architects can head on back to -- [ cheers and applause ] they can head on back to the great lone star state and put their name on some ballot, though for their sake i hope they give themselves a discount on their consulting services. >> first of all, i live in texas, i don't live in washington. >> yeah, but -- >> second of all -- >> you're a little dirty here now. >> second of all, look, sarah palin should be agreeing with this. she didn't support todd akin. when he said the reprehensible things he said she wisely came out and said he ought to get out of the race. racking in millions, i'm a volunteer. i don't take a dime. i pay my own travel expenses

[applause] >> welcome to
and listen to the president on this. >> we're after an election now. i think it is important for us to find out exactly what happened in benghazi and i'm happy to cooperate in any ways that congress wants and we have provided every bit of information that we have and we will continue to provide information, everything about that, we've had more testimony and more paper provided to congress than ever before, and congress is sort of running out of things to ask. >> well, look, the president's preamble to the statement says it all. we're after an election. before the election, after this happened on the anniversary of 9/11 the president was less than truthful with the american people and tried to keep a lid on this for his own political purposes, didn't match his message. after the election he claims he's given everything. what more can we give. we've given papers. mr. president it's not the papers that you give it's the papers that are relevant and the identification of the witnesses who were there and experienced the attacks and responded to the attacks and saved livelis. these are the peopl
this movement forward. [applause] >> thank you very much, supervisor. our next speaker was an elected member of the brussels parliament representing the green party. she was also minister of social affairs, health, and equal opportunities in the government before starting her political career in 1993, she worked in the european level in environmental and social organizations for 10 years. as a politician, she focuses particularly on the development of economically depressed areas which despite their assets face challenges like poverty, unemployment, and a lack of development. she believes these neighbors are a key to a vibrant and prosperous brussels. please. >> i'm happy to be here and as far as i could take note is the situation for cyclists as well as in oakland as in portland as in san francisco -- excuse me, i think, yes, important to be again the whole different thing. but as i understand most probably brussels is somewhere in-between. in the last few years, we managed to raise the amount of cyclists let's say from 1% in 2000 to what today is estimated but how did the countings go, but
in the cross hairs. in january 2005, iraq coast its first free elections in more than 50 years. the shiite majority became the strongest player in the new parliament, but violence overshadowed the tea. with more than 1000 attacks per week in late 2006, iraq threatened to slide into civil war. in 2007, u.s. troops erected a wall around city districts in an attempt to stem the sectarian bloodshed. the sectarian wall still divides parts of baghdad 15 months after the exit of u.s. forces. the sunni minority has expressed anger at what it sees as repression at the hands of the shiite-backed government. unrest and violence continued to dominate life in iraq. >> in germany, a court has started hearing a case brought by relatives of people killed in an air strike in northern afghanistan in september 2009. the german commander in the area ordered the nato air strike. >> at least 90 civilians were killed and dozens wounded in the air strike on two fuel tankers stolen by insurgents. berlin has already paid around 350,000 euros to the families of victims. they are seeking a total of 3.3 million in da
elections. >> heather: plus, results from the $338 million powerball drawing. they in are in but only one ticket managed to get all six numbers. >> rick: you didn't buy it because you are here. >> heather: did you win? >> rick: i didn't buy a ticket. >> heather: we'll tell you where it was sold up next. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ly knows when you need to leave for the airport, how much traffic there is, and can have your boarding pass ready. the droid razr maxx hd by motorola. droid-smart. droid-powerful. i took something for my sinuses, but i still have this cough.

to the specifics. watch for the senators from red states up for re-election and the pressure is greatest on them. they are away two weeks now from washington, back home, and there will be pressure on them. they will hear from their constituents about what to do from this. if you don't have much support, if any, among republicans, you need those democrats to get it through. >> hey, mark, give me a sense of harry reid's role in this. he wants to keep that title senate majority leader. navigating through these ice floes of this. >> it's already on the side of those who would like to see a large package, including a pretty big risk background check provision. it's not clear to me what more opponents can be to put pressure on senator reid. senator reid has a long history with the nra. they did not support him in his re-election race and i think he is looking for a path that not only protects his own views on gun control and not only tries to accommodate the white house but try to protect the majority. i think he is very stensive not just on guns but a range of issues too. all of these democrats are u
about his plans to compromise after the u.s. election. >> after my election i'll have more flexibility. >> as in putin. the pentagon is scrapping phase four of the european missile defense. the sm-3 block missile interceptors to stop intercontinental ballistic missiles or icbms like the ones iran is attempting to build. the pentagon said the decision has nothing to do with russia. >> let me emphasize the strong and continued commitment of the united states to nato missile defense. that commitment remains ironclad. >> we lost a bargainship, serious one i believe. >> others say the stage four were never viable and wouldn't be ready soon enough. >> the military implication of not developing phase four is not that great. the existing program is probably good enough. >> initial reaction from russia suggests their leaders do not feel "appeased." russia deputy foreign minister said this is not a concession to russia and we don't see it as such. >> bret: jennifer griffin at the pentagon. thank you. iran says it has launched domestically built destroyer in the caspian sea. this is video from ir
and pacific communities. so the first time that they hear from us isn't days or weeks before an election. that they've got ton know some folks, they've seen familiar faces that share their principles that talk about how our policies impact their families. and i think that's something is that we're committed to doing. and that the chairman launched today. >> you talk about faces and getting in early. the report talked about young republicans. it says on messaging we must change our tone, especially on certain social issues that are turning off young voters. in every session with young voters social issues were at the forefront of the discussion. many see them as the civil rights issues of our time. we must be a party that is welcoming and inconclusive for all voters. sean, put ago side how candidates look, does that mean you'll look for candidates that are more accepting for things like same-sex marriage? >> no, what it means and this is something that ronald reagan said in practice, which means my 80% sfrend not my 20% enemy. the principles are sound. is this not a question of how do we
obamacare, which was the central issue the last campaign where you remember president obama was re-elected, the senate went even more democratic, and the house democrats gained seats and won over a million more votes than the republicans. normal people would think that the obamacare issue might be settled. does anybody realistically think it's going away any time soon? the republican fantasy budget reduces taxes dramatically without a hint of how it would be possible. without exploding the deficit or dramatically raising taxes on the middle class. this is consistent with what the romney ryan ticket said on the campaign trail last fall. the same issue where they dodged, assembled, and ignored the perfectly reasonable question how is it possible? six months later it's back in the budget but there's still -- but there still is no answer. during the last 40 years there have been only four budgets without deficits. the last three clinton budgets and the one that george bush inherited from bill clinton. in each case taxes as a percentage of the total economy were over 20%. in this republican fan
a contested election, the adams' four years in the white house were a turbulent period in american politics and washington society. we'll look at louisa adams' relationship with her husband john quincy adams and john and abigail on the road to 1600 pennsylvania avenue. good evening and welcome to our continuing series on first ladies influence and image in partnership with the white house historical association. the next installment is on louisa catherine adams, the wife of john quincy adams. we have two guests at the able, richard norton smith and meet amanda matthews. she is at the massachusetts historical society where she is a research associate for the adams papers. ms. matthews, we learned there was not much documentary evidence about elizabeth monroe. how about louisa catherine adams, what exists? >> quite a wealth. she kept diaries intermittently. she wrote autobiographies and memoirs. there are hundreds and hundreds of letters of hers. we have her thoughts and feelings from her point of view, both reflective and contemporary as the events were taking place. >> another suggested tha
, the economy is waiting to be unlocked. enthey went on to say that's why we desperately need to you elect at least 17 democrats. 17 democrats in the house would give them the majority come 2014. >> yeah. look, it is a very, very ambitious goal. i believe the last time that the president has won that number of house seats in a six-year election, a mid, six year midterm was 1822. he has got his work cut out for him. i would suggest joe biden remember, house republicans were elected to do a job too. and they're doing, for their constituents exactly what they said they would do in the last election. so it is not as if republicans would bend to the president's will simply because he won an election. bill: that point is that the focus is on the debt. which one might argue would not be there unless you had house republicans pushing for that or at least holding the line. one final point, you say biden has given the game up here. what does that mean? >> yeah, look, i just think if there were a real charm offensive, if they actually wanted to find a deal, what would you not see is the vice presiden
direction the national democrats want to and winning elections with that approach. there is a lot to be learned both by the failure of the romney campaign in the senate races in the success of the republicans have had at the state level. >> host: we are taking your calls with grover norquist with americans for tax reform. our farmland or open democrats (202)585-3880 and republicans (202)585-3881. grover norquist known as an expert on some of these budget issues. you bring up the senate budget that we saw from budget chairwoman patty murray last week. talk about that and how you think it compares to paul ryan's budget? >> there are two major differences and they certainly going different directions. paul ryan's budget balances in 10 years and is not raise taxes and patty murray's budget never balances and raises taxes $1.5 trillion over the next decade. what the democrats and patty murray are saying in addition to the 600 million-dollar tax increase that obama won in january and they trillion dollars of obamacare tax increases that most americans are unaware of and they don't know
to be a factor. the next elections next year are going to show, hopefully, the more mature response from the electorate. having said that, i quickly add the qualification of this will be, again, colored and tempered by the fears of being whipped up right now. among the islamist shia, there is a weapon they use, the are coming to get you. and that is now amplified by the sunnis arabs are coming to get you. that makes the fear even more potent. the best things that the sunni arabs in iraq should do is try to alleviate this year. most of the wider element is aware of the danger of this fear, of government out of control. coming back to muqtada, the next elections, if they are not colored by a fervor, might produce a more mature out, and provide a new crop of younger leaders who have been less contaminated by the events of recent years. there is a ray of hope there. >> if i could just add to that, i agree entirely with the ambassador's assessment of muqtada al-sadr. he himself does not know what is doing the day after tomorrow. sadly, assassination can be very effective and the assassination
in election year but the way they did it was horrible. what they should have done is guarantee at the beginning those 100,000 euro deforests, anything above that they'd get shares in the new bank. you might take a hair cut but normally when a bank goes under, the creditors get shares in a new bank. these guys are just wiped out with no hope of recovery. >> so, the concern here is not so much cyprus itself which after all is the third smallest economy in europe, it's a tiny little island of less than a million people, is it to you more the indication that european leaders still haven't worked out how to deal with their financial problems? >> that is a good summation. they haven't. cyprus, we've known for nine months, was in trouble. they had plenty of time to cobble something together that wouldn't precipitate a panic or set the conditions for panic in the future. one of the things that the germans have not recognized yet is that piling on taxes on the private sector just deepens these recessions and makes them more severe than necessary. we haven't seen such foolry in my mind s
in the presidential election. i talked to a top u.s. official the other day who put it this way, he said "they're stuck with each other." both of these guys just won elections. the president starting his second term. prime minister netanyahu put together his coalition government. iran is a huge policy issue, trying to restart the peace process is a huge issue, if they have a better personal relationship they can get things done. you saw first thing this morning the prime minister tries to crack a joke, he says if you can ditch your security detail, i have a fake mustache and we'll go out and have a few drinks in the bar. it's clear they're trying to at least for the public con sujs to show they're going to work together better on the personal side. >> good to see you, john king there, traveling with the president. >>> the israeli embassy released a video for president obama's trip. we want everybody to take a look at this. ♪ thank you for being a friend ♪ traveled down the road and back again ♪ >> i know. you're scratching -- rubbing your eyes saying am i believing this? those cutouts of
: i certainly knew about it. we had not seen anyone look at it in the 2012 election cycle. decided toe and i take a snapshot. it is something i have heard about. it has come up from time to time. in fact, it used to be back before they changed ethics rules about a decade ago in congress, there were relatives .n official payrolls so that has changed some. here are some other members of that "usa today" mentions. the democrat of virginia congressman paid his daughter when hundred $5,000 -- thousands of dollars in bonuses. that amount -- guest: much smaller in terms of doug's payment. a spokeswoman said he was looking for someone else to do the job. $33,000.d about the practice is not limited to veteran lawmakers. the idaho republican congressman who was elected in 2010 put his wife on the payroll. a few months after he got sworn in, may 2011, she earned about $41,000 over a two-year. -- timeframe. host: democrat line, welcome. john? manchester, new hampshire, independent line. caller: good morning, thank you for taking my call. , thank you foren reporting the facts. i believe almost ever
think a government without another election is possible, they can bring together a coalition at the moment without an election? >> well, it really sdpents who they're going to be, the ministers, who are you going to support from outside the government. there are lots of -- three or four different -- >> permutations. >> exactly. we'll see. if not, we have to come back to general elections. >> okay. and how would investors view the prospects of -- >> general elections? >> general elections. >> we're going to drop probably another 70 basis points, we'll go back to 330, 350. >> that's manageable. >> well, it's where -- it's well manageable because we've already seen it. we are not going to come back to 7% or on 8%. >> good to see you. thanks for joining us. >> thank you very much. >> we'll take a short break. still to come, plenty more on cyprus. let's remind you of where futures are ahead of the wall street open a little later today. "worldwide exchange" continues after the break. >>> you're watching "worldwide exchange." these are the headlines today from around the world. a re
you call an organization that has over 900 elected mayors from around the country a front organization. it's a group of people that -- lou: what do you call it? >> it's the group that dealt with gun violence, but it's, you know, when you get something like 95 #% of the american people supporting bkdz checks, 85% of gun owners support it, 80% of the nra members support it, but congress has reluctance because of the nra. it shows the will of the people -- lou: do you really believe they are so afraid of the nra, or do you believe that they have some conscious towards their con stitch wents and want to represent the values and desires of the constituents? i mean, are you really writing off all those people in the senate and the house of representatives and saying they are nothing more than cowardly fools at the service of the nra rather than voting their conscious? >> i would not call them "cowardly fools," but i have ran for office and been elected for office, and it's not an issue that they know the background of or cares about, that a lot of times they look at the intensity of the oppo
for re-election in those kinds of states. so we're seeing some of this debate shifting to the states. i mean, because of this difficulty of getting these federal laws, some states have already started passing their own. colorado's governor signed the law there yesterday. we saw the very sweeping law in new york, although already they've had to back off a little bit on magazines because the problem is they didn't actually manufacture the kind of magazines they were talking about. having said that, rana, could this be where this debate is shifting? joe biden's somewhat optimistic belief notwithstanding. >> i think so. i think new york is going to get attention no matter what because of mayor bloomberg being involved in this issue. again, i hope he continues strongly down this path because i think he has the power to sort of look across both sides of the aisle and really bring some unity here. i think it's interesting that some of these western states are actually moving ahead and passing laws. i think that goes to the point that we have this idea that, you know, particularly in the west a
to get maryland to vote for john quincy adams the 1820 four election. >> how about the second question, how involved was she in the politics of the time? >> it has always been murky. there is no clear why between social politicking and the process leading to x number of votes being cast. one of the great skills begin with dolly madison, who understood that more could be achieved out of the committee room, off the floor of the house, in a social setting. louisa catherine is politically and attuned figure. i don't think you would find her dictating a platform. john quincy was 100 years ahead of his time. famously, in his first message to congress, -- remember this is a man whose legitimacy had been questioned. and yet, he introduced this breathtaking program that anticipates the new deal by 100 years. saying the federal government should we in the rowboat and business. there should be a national university and washington. he proposed a national astronomical observatory. a white house of the sky. for this, he was ridiculed by the jeffersonian small government crowd. it did nothing to enh
